As a new mother who likes to spend plenty of time outside, I’ve become obsessed with prams that can handle outdoor activity. And one outdoor activity that’s set to be huge this summer is urban trekking. It’s already popular in the US, with committed trekkers covering as much as 30-80K per day. Better yet, it’s a great family sport and one that mums can do with their babies.
But finding a pram that can cope with urban trekking can be a mammoth task. Enter the Surf 3 from Silver Cross. Boasting a trekking wheel, which can handle off-road terrain, the Surf can cope with muddy paths as well as city streets and it’s really light and manoeuvrable. It also has air-sprung suspension, inspired by the rear wheel suspension systems on top-notch mountain bikes, which ensures that it glides over different terrain with ease meaning your little one stays nice and comfy while you get your fitness fix. And its contemporary design looks stylish too. Result. Silver Cross Surf 3, £845; silvercrossbaby.com.
